LG Phoenix (AT&T)

 

The LG Phoenix offers AT&T customers a value-priced Android device that covers all the basics and more.

Unusually lightweight. Good mix of features and specs for the price.

CPU and display are several steps behind the class leaders.

Multimedia, Camera, and Conclusions The microSD card slot is located underneath the battery cover; my 32GB SanDisk card worked fine, and LG throws in a 2GB card to get you started. There's also 162MB of free internal memory. Music tracks sounded clear...

LG Phoenix review: LG Phoenix

 

The LG Phoenix is an attractive Android smartphone that ships with Android 2.2. Features include Wi-Fi and portable hot-spot capability, GPS, 3G, quad-band support, Bluetooth, and a 3.2-megapixel camera.

The LG Phoenix can't play Flash video in the browser. AT&T 3G coverage was spotty and a little unreliable. Preloaded AT&T apps are not removable.

The LG Phoenix is a very affordable option for those seeking an entry-level Android smartphone on AT&T Wireless.

LG Phoenix Review by Sydney

 

What's Good: Smooth performance with little to no lag; LG's custom UI adds nice design details but isn't too heavy; good battery life; live TV through AT&T U-verse. What's Bad: Somewhat boring physical design; no dedicated camera button.

Smooth performance with little to no lag; LG's custom UI adds nice design details but isn't too heavy; good battery life; live TV through AT&T U-verse

Somewhat boring physical design; no dedicated camera button

Based on my previous experience with other Optimus One phones, I had high expectations for the LG Phoenix and it did not let me down. The processor kept up with most everyday tasks and made everything smooth with little to no lag. This may not be a...

LG Phoenix (TM) (Refurbished)

 

I love this phone.It's battery life is strong, it's easy to navigate. The only problem i ever had is that the touch screen feature is very sensitive which led to me hanging up callers quite often. But besides that I love this phone!
